Concerns Arise Over Inclusion of Previous Exam Failures in Vice-Chancellor's Shortlist

Expressing apprehension, Dr. Bimala Rai Paudel, a member of the National Assembly, questioned the incorporation of individuals who previously attempted the Vice-Chancellor position exams at Tribhuvan University and did not succeed into the "shortlist."

During the National Assembly meeting on Magh 28, 2080, Member Paudel scrutinized the selection process, pointing out that those who had previously taken the examination and failed were included in the Vice-Chancellor shortlist. She voiced concerns about potential political interference in appointments and challenged the decision to include individuals accused of intellectual theft and power misuse in the shortlist.

Paudel also expressed reservations about the university's leadership, noting that despite holding leadership roles, some individuals failed to show progress. Moreover, individuals who encountered challenges and criticism found a place in the shortlist for the Vice-Chancellor position. She queried the inclusion of individuals facing allegations of intellectual theft and power abuse.

"Why are individuals accused of intellectual theft and power misuse part of the Vice-Chancellor shortlist?" she questioned, underscoring the necessity for a committee to investigate past irregularities and criticizing the decision to entrust leadership to long-standing figures.

Paudel further probed the selection process, questioning the rationale behind bringing back individuals who previously failed the test to the university. She asked, "If the goal is to prevent political interference and bring in competent individuals, why include those who failed the test in the Vice-Chancellor's shortlist once again?"

Emphasizing the need for a merit-based committee led by the Education Minister for the Vice-Chancellor appointment, Paudel urged the committee to attract qualified candidates and usher in new leadership instead of individuals facing criticism and challenges.

Member Anita Devkota highlighted the Mohi Act, urging the resolution of land-related disputes concerning Nepal Sanskrit University.
